University of Tennessee: Assistant Professor of Premodern Islamic History.

The Department of History at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville is seeking to hire a professor of premodern Islamic history (7th – 14th centuries) at the tenure-track Assistant rank. The appointment will begin fall semester 2023.

Ph.D. is required at the time of appointment. The field of research is open in terms of geography and thematic focus, though the successful candidate will be able to teach the undergraduate world history survey (pre-1500 CE) and offer upper level and graduate courses that complement our current strengths in premodern and medieval histories.  The Knoxville campus of the University of Tennessee is seeking candidates who have the ability to contribute in meaningful ways to the diversity and intercultural goals of the University.

Applications should include a cover letter addressing research and teaching interests and experience, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, and an article length writing sample. Materials should be submitted here. Review of applications will begin October 7 and continue until an appointment is made. Contact Jacob Latham, Search Committee chair.
